The Ultimate Writer’s Guide to Great Productivity by Tim Grahl

A while ago, I subscribed to updates from Tim Grahl (founder of Out:think, “a firm that works with authors to build their platform and sell more books”). A few of his ideas have really resonated with me, and I especially appreciate this latest post where he shares a clearly-written plan for increasing productivity, whilst cherishing family, work, and fitness.

Grahl has included some free templates with the post. You need to provide an email address to get the download.

My personal takeaway from this online guide is:

-Don’t sit down in front of the computer without a clear plan of what I want to achieve.
-Plan writing goals longer-term.
-Stop reading material on questionably-relevant topics.
-Buy an alarm clock and start using it!

  1. Tim Grahl’s habit of getting up early is a great idea. It’s also how Hugh Howey managed to write when he had a day job. I’m an early riser too and although I don’t write creatively then (have to wait until my son’s away at school so that I can concentrate) I use the time productively, which frees up more time later. I know other writers are nightowls and write after everyone else has gone to bed. Whatever works, works.
